The Bucs got a much-needed win on Monday night, beating the New York Giants, 30-10. But the victory came at a cost to one of their best players. Left guard Ali Marpet suffered an oblique strain in the first half and was immediately ruled out. On Monday night, head coach Bruce Arians had “no clue” on the severity of Marpet’s injury. By Tuesday, Arians had a better idea of how much time Marpet would miss.

“As far as Ali, it’s an oblique,” Arians said. “So we’ll have to wait and see how sore he is Wednesday and Thursday. See what he can do. It’ll probably be all the way until the end of the week before we know.”

With Marpet shaping up to be a game-time decision, backup guard Aaron Stinnie will receive most of the practice reps this week. Stinnie stepped in admirably for Marpet against the Giants, but did surrender a late sack of Blaine Gabbert. Stinnie and left tackle Josh Wells failed to pass off a twist on the play. In the playoffs last year, Stinnie started three games for the Bucs, including the Super Bowl victory.

Marpet hasn’t missed a single game this season after missing three a year ago. In fact, the Bucs starting offensive line has started all 10 games this season, barely missing a snap together. Marpet is in the midst of a Pro Bowl season, and was handling Leonard Williams when he went down on Monday night. It sounds like the Bucs top lineman could be a game time decision for Week 12 against the Colts.

Let’s hope Ali is good to go for Indy, but I have every confidence in Stinnie, who filled in admirably, a couple of times manhandling Williams like a rag doll. So let’s not risk Ali further aggravating the injury if he is not genuinely 100%.

Better result injury-wise than most games this year. We can handle one injury to an interior lineman. Hopefully Vea will be good to go against Indy, to help stop that rushing attack.

I guess you could say he surrendered a sack on Gabbert, but to me it looked like Gabbert held the ball to long. Gabbert is a career back up for a reason. Idiot just needed to throw the ball away there.
